Lana agrees to a new multi-year extension with WWE

WWE announced Tuesday that Lana agreed to a new multi-year extension with the company.

WWE did not disclose the terms of the contract extension. However, Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that the contract is five years and that the new deal allows her to take time off for outside projects.  

Also according to the same report, Rusev is still in discussions with WWE regarding a new contract and has yet to re-sign. 

Lana, (real name CJ Perry), first signed with a developmental contract with WWE in 2013 and was assigned to NXT.  She made her debut on the main roster in January 2014. 

Lana appears on the current season of Total Divas along with The Bellas, Paige, Natalya, Nia Jax and Trinity.

She also made the announcement of the new milt-year extension on Twitter, which you can view below.

The announcement from WWE’s website includes content related the ongoing storyline between Lana, her real-life husband Rusev and Bobby Lashley.  

Rusev and Lashley are scheduled for a Last Man Standing Match that will take place on the Starrcade special this coming Sunday, December 1 on the WWE Network live from Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth, Georgia beginning at 7:00pm ET.  

Lana agrees to multi-year extension with WWE

Unlike her relationship with Rusev, Lana’s WWE future is set in stone, as The Ravishing Russian has agreed to a multi-year extension with WWE.

Prior to their marriage hitting the rocks, Lana stood by Rusev’s side and whispered greatness into his ear as he held three US Championship reigns.

The contract adds to an eventful week for Lana after The Bulgarian Brute defied his restraining order and issued a brutal attack on Bobby Lashley at Monday Night Raw. 

Lana assured she’d remain strong after the incident but called for Rusev’s firing from WWE.
